The museum and trails are all first class. Well put together and a great experience. Anyone with any interest in WWII will really appreciate the thought that went into putting this dedication together. Humbling experience.

Reading about the Thai Burma railway and watching documentaries cannot prepare you for the experience. We were unable to walk the full 7km unfortunately as part of the track has been temporarily closed. Perhaps this moved me more because the walking track and museum was the result of some dedicated work by Australians and like ANZAC Cove and Villiers Bretonneux,... More

Museum and access to Hellfire Pass. Excellent job by the Australians, who built and maintain the museum and trails. It is dedicated to the Allied prisoners of war and Asian labourers who suffered and died at Hellfire Pass and elsewhere in the Asia Pacific region during World War II building the 'Death Railroad'. While somber and horrific it respectfully illustrates... More

hard to imagine they dug out that whole track (now the walking trail)! Lots of interesting little plaques and details, nice walk, not strenuous. Bummer, museum was closed on December 31!

Based on a friend's recommendation we decided to visit the Hellfire museum and trail. Incredibly so there is no entrance fee, but please give a donation as they truly deserve it. An audio guide is provided inside the museum, free of charge - you just have to leave ID and 200 baht deposit for each device. THE AUDIO DEVICE IS... More

If in the area, a definite must see. It was more than I expected. A very small museum, but give yourself time to read, digest, and connect to the information. We were given an hour (in a group tour) and it was not enough. My only disappointment was that not all of the visitors seemed to share the somberness of... More
